Wineries & Stories
Iron Horse Vineyards
Audrey and Barry Sterling founded this iconic winery in a not so iconic location at the time. In 1976 Green Valley was not only NOT an AVA, but it was rural Sonoma, a place grape growers had not really ventured yet.
Astrale e Terra
Like most people who visit Napa Valley for the first time, the owners of Astrale e Terra were amazed the land could be so beautiful, so untouched by commercialism, and could exist only an hour from San Francisco. In 1997, a group of friends purchased a winery and vineyard in the Atlas Peak Appellation with the goal of producing superior wines to share with other wine lovers – wine that lives up to Napa Valley’s standard of excellence.
It was a chance meeting of wine loving friends in wine country which sparked the journey of a lifetime - and led to Attune Wines. Mike and Nancy Scribner, Ken and Debbie Venner, and David Povlak had a dream to live among the vines and to make wine. Their friendship led them to one of the most beautiful locations in wine country. The Carneros AVA is also famous for growing some of the most enchanting Pinot Noir in the world. These wine friends partnered with talented winemaker, Kenneth Juhasz to complete their dream team. They are taking the wine industry by storm with their magnificent limited production, sustainably farmed Pinot Noir.
Barlow Vineyards is a true family business with two generations working the land and vineyards passionately. Warren and Jeanne Smith and Barr and Ann Smith relocated from Southern California seeking a life style change and to fulfill a life time dream. The land they purchased, now known as Barlow Vineyards, is an ideal 54 acre vineyard just south of Calistoga at the upper end of the Napa Valley. They all recognized the area was well known for producing intense red wines.
